History buffs and church explorers rejoice! Hi Medellin has the perfect tour for you.
Medellin has its fair share of beautiful and historic churches, and we know the fascinating history behind each one. Gaze in awe at the stunning architecture of the local churches and monuments in downtown Medellin, before heading “back in time” to the 1920s to visit Antioquia train station, since then declared a national monument. Representing the train system that used to be functional throughout the whole country before roads and cars took over, the train station has a classic vintage feel, and is filled with captivating history.
Then we will carry on our adventure, in your own air-conditioned private transport, to Plaza San Ignacio, a place of peace and education, where you may just catch some locals playing a seemingly endless game of chess or gossiping over a coffee. Learn all about the secrets that this square beholds, and what makes it so unique.
We conclude our tour at the Cemetery Museum San Pedro – best known for its famous “inhabitants”. Many famous Colombians are buried here, and our super knowledgeable bilingual guide can tell you all the history surrounding this place. Keep an eye out for the tombs with no “body” in them – some tombs are purely representative and their remains are actually elsewhere!
This tour is unmissable for anyone who loves learning the fascinating history of new places – and believe us, Colombia and Medellin have plenty of secrets waiting to be discovered by you thanks to Hi Medellin!
